===================

I'm not sure why you think the many previous posts provided no answer. Regardless, your proposal doesn't work, as this example shows

>> x=uint8(1);
>> x=4;
>> test=x/2

test =

2

>> decide=isinteger(test)  %concludes that the choice x=4 was odd

decide =

0

A modification of your idea that would work is as follows

>> x=4; decide=isequal(x/2,uint64(x/2)),

decide =

1

>> x=5; decide=isequal(x/2,uint64(x/2)),

decide =

0
```
